Quite possibly our most favorite place we’ve ever stayed in all the world — we took a leap of faith on a deal at a lodge few had heard of, and the gamble paid off big!
Local food gets repetitive, hotel food gets expensive, and expat food is often far away (and expensive). So what is a consultant to do when they are staying at the Mille Collines for a month? They eat samosas. Lots of samosas.
What is it like to spend nearly a month in Africa’s most famous (or infamous) hotels? Read about it here as well as what to see, do and eat on an extended stay in this lovely hilltop capital.
Backpacking in the tropics isn’t always a cakewalk, especially in the middle of rainy season. We tried our best to avoid the rains and would have been completely unsuccessful if not for a last-minute decision to head to Laos.
